The Democratic Foundation of Orange County is dedicated to developing and using financial resources to elect Democrats in Orange County.
Founded in 1983 by Howard Adler, Dick O'Neill, Bernard Schneider and David Stein, the DFOC is comprised of a broad coalition of professional, business, labor, environmental, civil rights and political leaders who are dedicated to developing the financial resources to support an effective Democratic presence in Orange County.
The DFOC has played a vital role in electing Loretta Sanchez to the U.S. House of Representatives, and in electing numerous other Democrats to Office. In fact, today there are now nearly 100 elected Orange County Democrats. President Obama came within a couple of percentage points of taking Orange County. Our county's leadership is changing for the better; it is becoming more representative of the people and it is becoming more Democratic. The Members of the DFOC are leading the charge for that change, leading the charge for the fairness and justice that comes with the election of Orange County Democrats.Learn more about the DFOC as you browse our website.
